Ok friends, here is another easy soup recipe! I'll leave it to you to make the grilled cheese sandwich to dip:)
In a soup pot, soften 2 diced carrot and 1 diced onion in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. This should take about 5 minutes. Add the following ingredients:
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
16 ounce can canellini beans, drained and rinsed
3 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer covered for 30 minutes. Remove the bayleaf, and using a hand blender, puree the soup. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with lemon rosemary creme fraiche (recipe below).
Lemon rosemary creme fraiche:
Mix 1/2 cup creme fraiche with 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary and the zest of one lemon. That's it!!!
